VIDEO/PHOTOS: Observant people who spotted tire tracks leaving a roadway led to the rescue of a 56-year-old man who had been reported missing 5 days ago in Cowlitz County.
After the 911 call came in around 9:30 a.m. Sunday, crews from Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue were sent to the 4900 block of Sunset Way. They spotted a pickup truck on its wheels about 150 feet down a steep and wooded ravine. Firefighters made their way through waist-deep brush and, to their surprise, found the man — later identified as Danny Sansbury — alive but seriously injured and ill, authorities said in a release. “I looked down there, and I still can’t believe he survived for 6 days like that,” said Terri Peck, who said she has known the man for 30 years.
